Today in Family History - 01 Nov

My 4th great-grandfather William Vandermade, Sr. (Erickson line) died on this day in 1903 in Mooreland Township, Muskegon, Michigan [1]. He was buried at Ravenna Cemetery in Ravenna, Muskegon, Michigan.

My 3rd great-grandmother Mary Dudley Williams (Baldwin line) was born on this day in 1832 in North Carolina [2, 3]. (Note: Mary's grave marker says she was born in 1823 but the 1860 United States Census records indicate about 1834. I believe the grave marker date is incorrect and is transposed from 1832 which would closely match the census record.)
